OBAMA BUNDLER TO LEAD TARGETING PROBE

conservapost:

Talk about an unnerving conflict of interest. A lawyer that just so happens to be a donor to Barack Obama and Democrats, will be leading the investigation into the targeting of Tea Party groups by the Internal Revenue Service. Darrell Issa of the House Oversight Committee has sent a startling letter to Eric Holder, commenting on the problems this raises regarding the fairness of this probe. An individual with financial ties to President Obama’s two campaigns and the Democrat Party has absolutely no right heading this investigation into why her organization decided to single out Conservative groups and their leaders. Allowing this to happen will definitely make sure the process harbors no fairness. This cannot stand.

Record-setting 72% of Americans cite “Big government” as the largest threat to the United States

The numbers in the latest Gallup pole are stunning, and if they’re true, the American people need to get ready to do some serious cleaning house in next year’s elections.

from Gallup:

 Seventy-two percent of Americans say big government is a greater threat to the U.S. in the future than is big business or big labor, a record high in the nearly 50-year history of this question. The prior high for big government was 65% in 1999 and 2000. Big government has always topped big business and big labor, including in the initial asking in 1965, but just 35% named it at that time.

The latest update comes from a Dec. 5-8 poll. Gallup has documented a steady increase in concern about big government since 2009, rising from 55% in March 2009 to 64% in November 2011 and 72% today. This suggests that government policies specific to the period, such as the Affordable Care Act — perhaps coupled with recent revelations of government spying tactics by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden — may be factors.

Currently, 21% name big business as the greatest threat, while 5%, a record low, say big labor. The high point for big labor was 29% in 1965. No more than 11% of Americans have chosen big labor since 1995, clearly reflecting the decline of the labor movement in the United States in recent decades.

The historical high choosing big business, 38%, came in 2002, after a series of corporate scandals rocked major corporations including Enron and Tyco. Also at that time, Americans may have been less willing to choose government given the rally in support for government institutions and officials after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Who thinks “big government” is a big threat?  Just about everybody. Take a look at these trend lines:

56% of Democrats now say “big government” is the largest threat to the United States, and that’s with a Democrat President

So, with a populace that finally seems to be waking up, where do we go from here? Well, for starters, it would be foolish to trust the current Republican leadership to do any better than Obama. They have caved to every single whim and demand of Obama in virtually every single major policy argument. Obama’s low poll numbers today are his own fault, not because Republicans have successfully made their own argument.

No, it’s time to drain the swamp.  Before you go to the poll next year, take a good, long look at your Congressman and Senator’s voting record.  Have they voted for debt ceiling increases, funding Obamacare, tax increases, or giving more power to the regulatory state?  Then it’s time to vote the bums out. 

That Democrat number is staggering.  I’ve always believed there are still more conservative-minded people in this country than radical leftist nutjobs (on Tumblr though, not so much.)  I also believe Obama suckered a good number of people into believing he was going to “change” Washington; however, we all evidently can see he just increased Washington ten fold.

Now if we can just get them to open their eyes and realize who are big government progressives and who aren’t, we’ll be ok as a nation. But, sadly, too many people are led around like mindless sheep instead of thinking for themselves. We have a lot of work to do as a movement and it isn’t going to quick or pretty.
